The first trailer for BBC One’s new one-off drama about the Bronte sisters has been released.
Written by Last Tango in Halifax creator Sally Wainwright, To Walk Invisible takes a new look at the extraordinary Brontë family, telling the story of these remarkable women who, despite the obstacles they faced, came from obscurity to produce some of the greatest novels in the English language.
Filmed in and around Yorkshire, the 120-minute drama will air at 9pm on Thursday 29 December on BBC One.
Watch the trailer…
Emily Brontë, author of Wuthering Heights, is played by Chloe Pirrie (An Inspector Calls) alongside Finn Atkins (Common) as her deeply ambitious older sister Charlotte, author of Jane Eyre.
Charlie Murphy (Happy Valley) plays level-headed younger sister Anne, who wrote The Tenant Of Wildfell Hall, and Adam Nagaitis (Banished) will play their brilliant but reckless brother Branwell.
Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones) plays the Brontë sisters’ father, Patrick.
Writer and director Sally Wainwright previously commented: “This is such an exciting and ambitious project, and we have already had a huge amount of interest in it. Something about the lives of these three brilliant, talented Yorkshire women seems to touch people at a very deep level. I am honoured that the BBC have asked me to bring to life this fascinating family in a story set in the heart of West Yorkshire.”
